Mixing it Up

There have been things going on that I haven't told you about.

Beauty things.

After a long term relationship with a tinted moisturizer, I've decided it was time to move on.  I heard rumors about it getting reformulated, and to be honest, I was just a little bored.  I got samples of several potential replacements and finally fell hard for the Bobbi Brown BB Cream with SPF 35.  It goes on smoothly and evenly, leaving a sheer coverage.  It's not heavy like a full foundation, but covers up a lot.  I can't really attest to any of the "BB" benefits, I just like the way it looks.

(I did try one heavier full-on foundation that I liked, but it's a little much for every day.)

New Beauty Stuff

While the foundation confession might be a little more shocking, I've also found a new favorite mascara in my neverending quest for perfection.  While I really liked Benefit's They're Real! mascara, I cannot resist picking up a new one (or three) when I'm reordering diapers and shampoo from and  They just make it too freaking easy.  TOO.  FREAKING. EASY.

So I bought the brand new Cover Girl Clump Crusher.  And, believe it or not, it does crush clumps.  The best part is the curved brush, which makes it really easy to apply the mascara, even in the corners of your eye.  I love that the brush really feels like it grips to the lashes and separates them with each stroke.  (If I sound like an ad here, it's only because I've been watching a lot of cosmetic commercials during Reese's naps.  They are just ON during those Law and Order: SVU marathons.  And I like the mascara.)

At first, I was worried it wouldn't make "enough" lashes, since a few strokes just leaves a nice daytime natural look, but more strokes build to a pretty nice darkness and thickness.  I haven't tried layering with another brand, mostly because I'm a wuss, but I bet it would really help.

So, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to order diapers and more mascara.
